empirical Formula
1 suppose 3.2g of sulfur reacts with oxygen to produce 6.4g of Sulfur oxide. what is the formula of the reaction.
1.1 Step 1: you have to first find the masses.
1.1.1 S: 3.2 O:3.2
1.1.2 Step 2:Look Up Ar Value
1.1.2.1 S:32 O:16
1.1.2.2 Step 3: Divide the masses by the Ar
1.1.2.2.1 S: 0.1 O: 0.2
1.1.2.2.2 Step 4: Find the ratio
1.1.2.2.2.1 S:1 O:2
